I was SO looking forward to including this recipe with you all as part of my Christmas series, but things played out a bit differently this month (you can read about it here), and it just wasn't possible to get this up... until now. Though I prepared this as Christmas gifts, the mix would still work wonderfully for New Years (or let's be serious, any time of year)!Before I jump into the goods, I have to give a big shoutout to a friend who kindly shared this recipe with me. After receiving this mix for a couple Christmases (and secretly hiding it in the back of the fridge from the rest of my family... totally serious), I just had to ask her if she wouldn't mind sharing and she didn't at all (woo hoo)!
